I'm an Ace fan, and I'm happy to see him going to LHW.
Do you guys think he has a chance at the title here?

KyleB has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Absolutely no chance, ever. Ever, ever ever.

Chuck?
Wanderlei?
Rampage?

Ace will get murdered.

I'm a fan of Rich, but I think the heavy hitters in the LHW division will be his downfall. Rich, if anything, has shown that his chin is suspect at best. I think that he could do well but ultimately I think he will get tagged by the harder hitters like Chuck, W. Silva, Rampage, etc.

How is his chin suspect? He took a LOT of shots from Silva who is one of the hardest hitters in the UFC and certainly the most powerful MW striker.

Evan Tanner and Loiseau both rocked him in his fights. He has shown that his chin is suspect. In his fight with Machida he got caught with a left that crumpled him. A. Silva was not even in the equation when I said that.

I'm an "Ace" fan but I think it was stupid of him to go up to LHW and he should of stayed at MW. I think Hamill is going to beat him.

Franklin already got ko'd by Machida, & he's not the hardest hitter in the division, so considering the depth at LHW if he ever won it he prolly couldn't keep it long.
